31 Different Coral Bell (Heuchera) Varieties

Heuchera, also known as Coral Bells, have many different-looking plants to choose from within the genus. Many are acclimated across different climate zones, giving you plenty of options no matter where you plan to grow them. In this article, certified master gardener Laura Elsner takes you through her favorite varieties of Coral Bells to try in your garden this season.

Different varieties of coral bells growing together in a garden. The foliage has many colors.

Flowers only have a small window of blooming, and they can require deadheading, staking, and fussing. So when you find a plant that can bring vibrant color into the garden without flowers, it’s time to start planting! Be careful, though. Once you add one to your garden, you’ll end up planting a new variety in every color.

Coral bells (aka heuchera) are a beautiful shade-friendly perennial plant. They come in so many colors and have beautiful ruffled evergreen foliage. It comes in a wide variety of colors, including cinnamon caramel, dark plum, bright chartreuse, and frosted silver (to name a few).

They make wonderful shade garden companions amongst the hostas, ferns, and brunnera. Or They also function well as a leafy color contrast to other plants and flowers in different container gardening arrangements.

Coral bells are a semi-evergreen perennial, so the foliage can be enjoyed in all four seasons. Some even change colors with the season. If the leaves are damaged and brown, they can be snipped off, and they will regrow from the base. So let’s dive into the beautiful, whimsical world of heuchera with a list of 31 different varieties for your garden.

‘Berry Timeless’

Berry Timeless Heuchera plant blooms in a mulched flower bed in the garden. The plant has dense small lobed foliage, dull silver in color with rich green veins. Intense pinkish-red bell-shaped flowers bloom on tall brown stems.

‘Berry Timeless’ is the perfect name for this variety of coral bells because it is classic. The leaves are a frosted white with green running through their veins. If the pretty foliage wasn’t enough, wait for this variety to bloom.

This variety blooms lots of long stalks of delicate berry reddish pink colored flowers. This variety looks great in a container, and the frosty green foliage really pops next to the bright flowers.

‘Caramel’

‘Dolce Cherry Truffles’

A small plant Dolce Cherry Truffles Heuchera grows in the middle of a flower bed covered with small decorative white pebbles. Green grass grows to the right of the decorative flower bed.

Dolce Cherry Truffles has smaller, more ruffled foliage than most coral bells. It is a dark cherry color. The finer texture on this plant makes it really interesting when placed next to a large leaf plant, like a hosta.

The dark purple color and the fine ruffled texture really pop next to a green and/or chartreuse hosta (like Hosta ‘Paul’s Glory’). It also looks great in a container next to pink flowers such as nonstop ‘Deep Rose’ begonias.

This heuchera hybrid lives up to its name.

It flowers small white flowers, which are not its main feature but certainly don’t detract from this bold beauty.

This variety is large enough to fill an entire pot. If you have a grouping of pots, place Mahogany Monster in one and then plant other plants, such as a Fuschia and a palm, in the others.

‘Primo Wildrose’ reminds me of fruit punch. It is a lovely burgundy color. It has lightly frosted leaves. The color is so rich and unique it looks great in containers.

Dolce cinnamon curls coral bell is a unique variety. When it first comes out of the ground in the spring, it is a bright orange color. Then as the season goes on, it mellows into a coppery cinnamon color. It has pretty ruffly leaves that give it an added pop of texture.

It is a lovely variety to layer with other color heucheras. Or put it in a fall-themed planter with rudbeckia and Pennisetum ‘first knight’.

Venus is a gorgeous feature variety. It has light silvery foliage with dark green (almost purple) veins streaking through it like lightning. Place this coral bell in an area where it can be admired, either a container or a border.

This striking foliage looks great when it is mixed in with hostas and other green foliage plants. Its frosted foliage would also look great in a container. Either on its own or with other silvery or dark-leaved plants such as dichondra ‘Silver falls’ or purple fountain grass.

‘Midnight Rose’

Top view, leaves of the plant Midnight Rose Heuchera. The leaves are large, rounded, slightly lobed, glossy, smooth, rich burgundy in color with chaotic pink spots all over.
This variety is a delightful cultivar with dark burgundy leaves and irregular pink spots.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White
  • Foliage Color: Red and pink
  • Flower Time: Summer

Midnight Rose is a gorgeous specialty variety. It features dark burgundy leaves flecked with irregular pink spots. As the season rolls on, the spots will fade to a light cream color. This variety should be planted up close to be admired as a work of art.

‘Dolce Key Lime Pie’

  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: Pink
  • Foliage Color: Yellow
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1′
  • Width: 1′

‘Dolce Key Lime Pie’ is a more popular variety of coral bell. It’s a neat clump of lobed leaves in a bright chartreuse color. The leaves also have a bit of a marbled green look to it, which adds an extra layer of dimension. It is the perfect plant to use if you are looking for a way to make the details in some hostas pop.

If you have a hosta with dark and light green leaves, such as ‘Guacamole’, placing it near a bright green key lime pie heuchera will make it shine. I also like using this variety in containers. It’s very reliable and practically maintenance-free. It flowers dainty pink flowers in the summer.

‘Marmalade’

Top view, closeup of Heuchera Marmalade leaves in a sunny garden. The leaves are lobed, with extra twisted edges, have incredibly bright golden and red hues.
This variety has vibrant, reddish-gold, extra-twisted leaves that will add incredible color to your fall garden.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White
  • Foliage Color: Amber
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 10″
  • Width: 1.5′

‘Marmalade’ brings the fall season into spring and summer. This extra curled leaf variety of coral bell sports an autumn gold color with a reddish-pink underside. The solid-colored underside really adds dimension into this variety and makes it stand out from afar.

It looks especially great when placed with yellow flowers in either the ground or in containers. Rudbeckia or coneflowers would be good choices to plant with Marmalade.

‘Splendens’

Close-up of flowering Splendens geuchera flowers against a blurred background of green lobed foliage. Tall, slender stems with bright pink, intense, bell-shaped flowers with creamy stamens.
This variety stands out for its bright red bell-shaped flowers that rise above medium green foliage.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: Red
  • Foliage Color: Green
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1′
  • Width: 1′

Splendens is a low-key variety. It has medium green foliage that is lobed in the classic heuchera style. But what makes this variety stand out is the very bright and bold red flowers that rise up from its green leafy foliage.

It is a bold red color, but the texture is fine and soft, making it an interesting bloom to add to your perennial garden. It blooms in the early summer, and I find the blossoms last quite a long time.

‘Southern Comfort’

Close-up of the leaves of the Southern Comfort Heuchera plant lit by the sun in the autumn garden. Distyas are large, palmately lobed, bright copper, red and orange.
‘Southern Comfort’ is an excellent choice for southern growers as it is tolerant of hot conditions.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White
  • Foliage Color: Orange
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1.5′
  • Width: 1.5′

This variety of coral bell is especially heat tolerant, making it a great choice for southern gardeners. I love its large leaves that are a bright copper color which eventually mellow out to a more peachy color as the season wears on.

The leaves all seem to be different shades of the bright orange color which creates a really multifaceted look in the garden. It blooms white flowers in the summer on thin red stems. Plant this variety in garden beds or in containers, it will be noticed.

‘Primo Black Pearl’

Close-up of Primo Black Pearl Heuchera leaves in the garden. The leaves are dark purple, palmately lobed, with wavy margins and hairy stems and undersides of the leaves.

  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: Pink and white
  • Foliage Color: Deep purple
  • Flower Time:
  • Height: 1′
  • Width:1.5′

‘Primo Black Pearl’ is one of the darkest varieties of heuchera. It is dramatic. It features large, almost black foliage. This variety can get lost in a garden because it is so dark. Make sure to have another plant nearby that it can contrast against.

Such as a chartreuse hosta or golden creeping Jenny. Or take it off the ground and place it in a brightly colored pot. It blossoms delicate white flowers that bloom from pinkish-colored buds.

‘Spellbound’

Close-up of a low 'Spellbound' Heuchera plant in a summer garden. The plant consists of many pubescent purple stems with single, large, ruffled, deeply lobed leaves. The leaves have an incredibly beautiful berry-purple color with a silver coating on top. Green flower buds grow on tall thin purple stems.
This variety impresses with its large, ruffled, berry-purple foliage.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White and pink
  • Foliage Color: Silver and purple
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 8″
  • Width: 1.5′

‘Spellbound’ is a bright berry purple variety with frosted leaves. It has large ruffled leaves, which make a great contrast to hostas in the garden. For more silvery leaves, put this heuchera in more shade. Or, for more of the intense berry purple color, put this variety in a sunnier spot.

This variety looks really rich and beautiful when next to green foliage. Place underneath a cedar in a container for a great combination.

‘Villas Autumn Bride’

Close-up of green leaves of Villas Autumn Bride Heuchera in the garden. The leaves are large, lush, rounded, slightly lobed with serrated edges.
This variety produces huge, lush, bright green leaves and beautiful white flowers.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White
  • Foliage Color: Green
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1-3′
  • Width: 1-3′

‘Villas Autumn Bride’ is not known for its foliage color. It is a plain medium green color. But I love how large and lush the leaves get and how large the plant itself gets. This variety can grow up to 3 feet wide!

It forms a big mound of leafy foliage that creates a lush look in the garden. The leaves have a fizzy feel to them, giving it some added texture in the garden. In the late summer, this plant sends up spikes of lovely white flowers, the perfect thing to brighten up the shade.

‘Peppermint Spice’

This charming species of heuchera has stunning matte green leaves with glossy green margins and dark purple veins.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: Red
  • Foliage Color: Silver and green
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 8″
  • Width: 1′

‘Peppermint Spice’ is a work of art that is stunning in almost any garden. The leaf details are amazing. It has a margin of green around the edges and a frosted middle. Then it has bold reddish veins that shoot through it.

This heuchera would be great just like that, but on top of all that it blooms stalks of coral color flowers that really pop. This is a perfect plant in both gardens and containers. Place it in areas where people can really enjoy its intricacies up close.

‘Georgia Peach’

Top view, close-up of a Georgia Peach Heuchera plant in a sunny garden. The plant has thin red, hairy stems on which grow large, heart-shaped, slightly lobed leaves of a peach-orange hue.
This variety is a hardy cultivar in hot and humid conditions with incredibly beautiful peach-orange foliage.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White
  • Foliage Color: Orange
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1′
  • Width: 1.5-2′

Georgia Peach is another variety that works great in hot and humid conditions. It emerges a bright peachy orange color in the spring. Then in the fall, it blushes to a redder color, and the foliage gets a silvery frost on it.

It flowers dainty creamy white flowers. This variety is great for breaking up the monotony of green foliage. It is bright, bold, and beautiful.

‘Huntsman’

A close-up of a blooming Huntsman geyhera with a blurred garden in the background. The long thin purple stems are covered with many bright red bell-shaped flowers with yellow centers.
This variety of Coral Bells blooms with incredibly cute and dense feathers of coral bell flowers.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: Red
  • Foliage Color: Green
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1′
  • Width: 1′

Huntsman is a great variety of heuchera if you want flowers. It has mottled dark green-bronze leaves that look lush but fairly unremarkable.

It’s the red flowers that rise out of this variety that make it so special. Thick plumes of coral flowers, this variety fit the very definition of a coral bell.

‘Tokyo’

Close-up of an ornamental Tokyo Heuchera leaf in a sunny garden. The leaf is large, heart-shaped, slightly lobed, bright green in color with a silvery coating.

  • Zone:4-9
  • Flower Color: Red
  • Foliage Color: Green
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 10″
  • Width: 2′

Tokyo is a lovely bright green variety. The leaves are bright green and lightly frosted with silver. The silver will be more prominent in shadier areas.

It has lots of spikes of bright red flowers that bloom later in the summer. The cherry red blooms are really set off by the bright lime green foliage. This variety would look great in a container on its own.

‘Melting Fire’

A close-up of one young leaf of Melting Fire geyhera in a sunny garden. The leaf is small, ruffled, lobed with very wavy edges, deep burgundy color. The stem and leaf surface are completely covered with tiny white hairs.
This variety produces deep burgundy ruffled leaves and creamy white flowers.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White and pink
  • Foliage Color: Burgundy
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 8″
  • Width: 1′

Melting fire combines the best of both worlds in terms of color and texture. It is a lovely deep burgundy color. The leaves are deeply ruffled, adding some dimension and texture to your garden. It flowers small creamy white flowers that pop out of pink buds.

They can be clipped off if it is the foliage that you want to show off. This looks great in containers because it adds an element of texture and color.

‘Timeless Night’

Heuchera plant Timeless Night grows along the path in the garden. The plant has large, lobed, ornamental, dark purple leaves with a silvery sheen and dark purple veins. Tall purple stems are covered with small, bell-shaped deep pink flowers.
This variety impresses with its large black leaves and bright pink bell-shaped flowers on tall stems.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: Pink
  • Foliage Color: Almost black
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 10″
  • Width: 1.5′

‘Timeless Night’ is an almost black variety of heuchera. This ultra-dark variety is striking in a garden. This plant has beautiful contrast when paired with lighter color foliage. Try it next to a ghost fern. The silvery green foliage of the fern looks great next to Timeless Night. This variety also makes a great addition to a container design.

Pair it with ferns and other green plants for a striking combination. This variety blooms pink in the late summer. The blooms on this heuchera are quite lovely. Their bright pink flowers really pop against its dark foliage.

‘Electra’

Top view, close-up of a young Electra geichera plant growing in the garden. The plant is low, has thin pubescent stems on which delightful decorative leaves grow. The leaves are heart-shaped, with lobed rounded edges, a bright green-yellow color with red veins.
This is a delightful variety that changes color from bright yellow with red veins to a more copper tone.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White
  • Foliage Color: Red and green
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 8″
  • Width: 1′

Electra is like three coral bells in one. It starts off a bright yellow color with shocks of red veins through the leaf. Then it starts to change to a more copper tone as the season wears on. In the winter, it will be a more peachy color.

It flowers simple white flowers, which can be clipped off to focus on the changing foliage. This variety is on the small side, so it would look great tucked into a container as a filler plant.

‘Tiramisu’

Close-up of a Coral Bells 'Tiramisu' plant. The leaves are slightly lobed, bright yellow with red veins. The edges of the leaves are slightly wavy.
This type of Coral Bells plant has bright yellow leaves with red veins.
  • Zone: 4-8
  • Flower Color: White
  • Foliage Color: Green and Red
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1′
  • Width: 1′

I love the color-changing varieties of heuchera. They seem to shapeshift for every season. Tiramisu starts off as a bright yellow heuchera with shocks of red through the veins. The brick color is intense in the center and fades towards the margin.

Then in the summer, the red begins to fade away entirely, and it takes on a lightly frosted appearance. It flowers white, but it’s the color-changing foliage that is the main feature of this variety.

‘Peach Flambé’

Top view, close-up of large red leaves of Heuchera Peach Flambé in a sunny garden. The leaves are deeply lobed, deep orange-red in color, hairy on all sides.

  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White
  • Foliage Color: Red
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1′
  • Width:1′

Peach Flambé is an intense red color. It looks unreal. It has deeply lobed leaves, which give it an extra element of texture as well as color. Then in the fall, the color will become less bright and more of a rich dark copper. It flowers small white flowers on red stems.

‘Lime Rickey’

  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White
  • Foliage Color: Yellow
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1′
  • Width: 1.5′

Lime Rickey is another bright green variety that brightens up the shade. This variety features smaller ruffled leaves. The small foliage adds an extra element of texture that layers really well with large leaf plants such as hostas and brunnera.

This variety blooms lots of spikes of white flowers. The small leaves of this variety are great for containers.  It adds textural interest as a filler plant that makes the pot look full and lush.

‘Forever Purple’

Top view, closeup of coral bells "Forever Purple" leaves. Large, lobed, dark purple leaves with dark veins and slightly wavy margins.
This variety stands out for its unbeatable large purple-violet leaves.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: Pink
  • Foliage Color: Purple
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1′
  • Width: 2′

If you want the most stunning purple plant, then put ‘Forever Purple’ on your list. This heuchera is a vibrant deep purple. When hit with water or morning dew, it absolutely shines. It is a great way to break up the monotonous greens in a garden without even adding a flower. It flowers creamy white flowers that are pink in the center.

This variety especially pops when placed next to silver foliage plants. Try placing it in a container with dichondra ‘Silver Falls’ trailing out.

‘Citronelle’

A close-up of a leaf of a Heuchera Citronelle against a backdrop of bright helena foliage. The leaf is young, palmately lobed, bright green, lime in color, slightly pubescent over the entire surface and on the stem.
This variety has bright green, lime-colored leaves and small white flowers.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White
  • Foliage Color: Yellow
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1′
  • Width: 1′

‘Citronelle’ is a bright yellow variety. Of all the lime green/chartreuse varieties, this plant is the brightest. It stays vibrant all throughout the season. It flowers small white flowers which can be trimmed off if you really want to focus on the sharp color.

This variety is great for areas in your garden where you want to break up the green. I also like it in a pot. It adds a jolt of bright yellow foliage. Try mixing it in a pot with other varieties of heuchera.

‘Ginger Ale’

Close-up of a gardener holding a potted heuchera Ginger Ale in a black plastic pot against a backdrop of lush red and ginger heuchera foliage. The bush consists of many heart-shaped leaves with wavy edges in pleasant ginger and pale amber hues with distinct veins.
This variety has gorgeous ginger leaves with a pale amber hue.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White
  • Foliage Color: Amber
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1.5′
  • Width: 1′

‘Ginger Ale’ is a soft spiced ginger color. It has a light frosting on top. It has a beautiful hue of pale amber coloring in the foliage. The flowers are ivory in color and have red stems that really stand out.

This heuchera would look great layered with other red and copper-colored heucheras. It’s a nice neutral tone.

‘White Spires’

Close-up of blooming heuchera White Spires flowers in a sunny garden against a blurred background. Tall thin stems are covered with small white bell-shaped flowers with cream centers.
This species of heuchera is known for its delightful small white flowers.
  • Zone: 4-9
  • Flower Color: White
  • Foliage Color: Green
  • Flower Time: Summer
  • Height: 1′
  • Width: 1.5′

This green variety of coral bell is all about the blooms. The leaves are small and fairly nondescript. But it blooms lots of long stalks of beautiful white flowers.

The flowers are a fine texture, almost like an astilbe. ‘White Spires’ would be perfect to naturally illuminate a pathway in a moon garden.

Final Thoughts

Flowers in a garden come and go. Coral bells are beautiful plants with minimal blooms that can brighten up any garden space. Their colors and textures will highlight your garden, and their short-lived flowers are just a bonus.

Tuck them into any part shade-shade area of your garden, and they will instantly break up the sea of green that is often present. The ruffled leaves also add interest. Consider adding a heuchera or two to your garden this season. And don’t forget about adding them to your containers for some added foliage interest.
